Fare Left Wind Statistics, Autumn averages since 2006

This chart shows how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal southern hemisphere autumn. The biggest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the strongest winds shown by dark blue. It is based on 8052 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2007, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to Fare Left, located 24 km away (15 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. Invevitably some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the prevailing wind at Fare Left blows from the SSW. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at Fare Left. On the other hand, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more the darkest shade of blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical southern hemisphere autumn, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (pale blue) about 7% of the time (6 days each southern hemisphere autumn) and blows offshore 62% of the time (56 days in an average southern hemisphere autumn). Over an average southern hemisphere autumn winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 6 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at Fare Left

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
